The Empress's New Clothes: A Rotulus Pannorum of Isabella, Sister of King Henry III, Bride of Emperor Frederick II -- Unveiling Social Fashion Patterns: A Case Study of Frilled Veils in the Low Countries (1200-1500) -- What Is the Pearl-Maiden Wearing, and Why? -- "Hys surcote was ouert": The "Open Surcoat" in Late Medieval British Texts -- London Merchants' Cloth Exports, 1350-1500 -- Laboreria Sete: Design and Production of Lucchese Silks in the Late Fourteenth and Early Fifteenth Centuries.
This year's volume focuses largely on the British Isles, with papers on dress terms in the Middle English Pearl ; a study of a thirteenth-century royal bride's trousseau, based on unpublished documents concerning King Henry III's Wardrobe; an investigation into the "open surcoat" referenced in the multilingual texts of late medieval England; and, based on customs accounts, a survey of cloth exports from late medieval London and the merchants who profited from them. Commercial trading of cloth is also the subject of a study of fifteenth-century brokers' books, revealing details of types, designs, and regulation of the famous silks from Lucca, Italy. Another paper focuses on art, reconsidering the incidence of frilled veils in the Low Countries and adopting an innovative means of analysis to question the chronology, geographical diversity, and social context of this style.
